When one tries to establish too many concurrent client connections to monetdbd (e.g. 1000 mclients), acceptConnections() will fail with "Too many open files". Subsequently monetdbd will decide to simply stop working (i.e. exit(0)).

So, it's not a crash, but monetdbd shouldn't exit after such a non-critical error.

Changeset description:

Not all errors are the same: don't exit for transient failures.
This (hopefully) fixes bug #6635.

With no indication to the contrary, I'm assuming this has been adequately fixed.
